how to get the windings symbol inside the chartfx?


Recommended Posts

i am using chartfx client server 5.1 with vb. 

while giving ascii value to markershape, windings font is not reflected.

if i give the chartfx.series(1).markershape = -171

it is displaying "<<" instead of star in windings font.

can anyone tell me what is problem and how to get the windings symbol inside the chartfx?

thanks in advance

Its working for me. Could this be related to your environment? I found one interesting thing while looking for the decimal equivalent of Wingding chars. If I looked at the following page in FF, I see << for 171. If I visited the same page on IE, I see the star. Hope this info helps.


Here is my test code. Screenshot attached.

  Dim i As Integer

  Dim j As Integer


  i = 0

  j = 0


  chart1.OpenDataEx COD_VALUES, 1, 10

  Do While (i < 1)

  Do While (j < 10)

  chart1.ValueEx(i, j) = Rnd * 100

  j = j + 1


  i = i + 1


  chart1.CloseData COD_VALUES


  chart1.Gallery = SCATTER


  chart1.Series(0).MarkerShape = -171


  chart1.MarkerSize = 10
